Giving users additional freedom and control to personalise each blog post design within their blog to improve the user experience of the blog they are publishing to sounds great. Most blogging tools today don’t allow the look and feel of individual posts to be personalised, which means as a blogger you could feel restricted and unable to express yourself as you may wish, you can’t use visual design to make any particular post stand out – except for the usual font colour size variation and imagery you insert. Your readers could be bored and less engaged that on blogs where this technique is starting to be used. This could lead bloggers to feeling restricted by how much you can express yourself or make a particular post stand out. Conversely if every post looked different the overall design of the blog could be overwhelmed by a lot of visual noise. I’d love to hear your views.
